[PHOTO] Five photos taken around Castle Frank Station

When I got off at Castle Frank Station last night around 5 o’clock, evening was already beginning to fade into twilight. The yellow leaves of fall stood out in the dim, standing east of the downtown along Yonge as the rush hour traffic inched still further east.
